    I have been working at Logica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are still good people working here both personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Pressure to cut costs highly increased after the acquisition by CGI - it leads to worse environment and worse access to education. Higher management looks effectively disconnected to reality. Minimum chance to learn new things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to change the company to a pool of cheap labour force before it's too late.

    I have been working at Logica full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, work/life balance, homeworking infrastructure, benefits(PHI)
    Confidence in management much improved after CGI take-over.

    Cons

    Career development difficult/non-existent
    Appalling Logica appraisal system has unfortunately survived the CGI take-over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The changes made in the wake of the CGI take-over were unsettling at first, but one year in, the company is transformed, with customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction and sound business practice all meeting onerous targets.

    Pros

    Sallaries paid in time, good tools, nice properties. Pretty good spirit between empoyees. Some off time activities. Good food in cantine.

    Cons

    From time to time management doesn't have a clue what is going on. They give false promises or just don't know why things go the way they do. They don't take responsibility for they actions either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really should consider who is right person to be a new manager. It's not automatically the most senior engineer.

    I worked at Logica full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, very supportive and some interesting projects.

    Cons

    Too scrupulous on travel which subsequently hindered productivity. Travel compensation policy was very blurred and confusing. I could claim travel expenses from my home to customer site for some projects but was asked to offset against my "Base office" on others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more focus on productivity and providing a better quality of service to customers rather than spending all of the time looking at ways to scrimp on costs (travel, training, resource, etc)

    Former Employee - Project Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Logica full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working here, you are pretty much assured that team members will all pull in the same direction. Most of the people are very easy to get on with, accommodating and prepared to put in the extra hours to get the work completed if necessary.
    There is a very good pension and work/life balance is excellent, which includes the opportunity to work from home 1-2 days a week on average.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is felt that the home working has gone too far and people become too isolated from the rest of their team.
    Poor middle management which has plagued the company for years.

    Pros

    Best are the people - it is great team of people and it is pleasure to work with them.

    Cons

    Benefits are not very competitive especially when being longer time with the company. One you are in, don't expect big changes in your salary.
